[ARCHIVED] Mandatory Boil Water Alert In Place City-wide

Boil Water Alert

The City of Hollywood Department of Public Utilities has announced a mandatory boil water alert of all residents in the City of Hollywood effective 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, September 10th. The City’s Water Treatment Plant experienced a significant drop in pressure during the storm.  As a result of this drop in pressure, the City is advising all property owners to boil their water for drinking purposes until further notice. Three water main breaks were identified as having the source of the pressure loss. Crews repaired these lines on Monday, September 11.  Water sampling and testing are underway.  Once test results come back as clear, (testing takes 24 hours) the boil water alert will be lifted.  

Residents should not use drink their tap water without boiling it first, as boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Bring all water to a rolling boil for one minute. Only boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, hand-washing dishes, and food preparation. 

The City will post notification on the City's website, send out an email notification and issue a Code Red Emergency update.
